In Memory of a Flower.

I am not sure if this sad news has been shared in this forum.

A Canadian Havanese show dog was killed recently by another dog, while under the care of a professional handler.

To me the show dogs sacrifice the most for the betterment of the breed, with the testing, heavy travel, long days, endless grooming and time away from the family.

I thought for Juanita if Hyacinth's death was not in vain it could help with the healing. She has asked on her blog for donations to Havanese rescue. So I have taken the liberty to ask again.

Please send a small monetary condolence to Havanese Fanciers of Canada Rescue, add a note in the Memory of Hyacinth.

Or for Christmas gifts this year, I am donating profits from sales of these designs at Cafepress to HFCR.

Thanks for your consideration, Angela

How terribly sad. From what I read on the blog Hyacinth was such a sweet dog, her photos are beautiful.

I was outside talking with some neighbors today about another dog on our street. He has acted aggressively towards adults, kids and other dogs and the family lets him out off leash all the time! After reading this, I'm going to email our HOA and ask that they remind everyone of the leash law. It's scary to have any dog come after you but a big dog is even scarier.

doggy safe

I read about that dog and it is terrible. This isn't the first time this has happened at a show.

Scooter's mom, just be careful. I have havanese that hop with happiness when they are outside on walks and they look like rabbits. Many stupid people allow their dogs off-leash while they are working in the garage around here and the dogs (protecting their territory) have charged my dogs and even bit them. One neighbor's dog was attacked by an attack dog and the poor dear is still fearful. The neighbor with the attack dog moved away.

Riki was grabbed by the neck and shaken when he was about a year by a lady who said that her dog "never does that". Argh. We were walking once and two pit bulls were loose...I've never been so scared in my life.

It has been suggested to carry pepper spray on my walks...which I haven't done yet. Just know that in my five years with Riki we have encounted at least six times very scary situations and a few more with friendly dogs off leash...and I live in a supposed very good neighborhood.

At dog shows the folks are so nervous and there are so many dogs around getting groomed or whatever and they are not on leash. We were told at the pet expo to be careful because we had Shibas next to us and they are hunting dogs. Our havanese saw them with curled tails and being small, thought they were harmless. Since havanese are lovers, they are unsuspecting targets.

You see they hop, they have long curvy hair, and they are often white. Dogs with prey drive see them as a fun game...

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!

Does anyone know exactly what happened? This is awful and unacceptable for it to have happened at a show if that is what happened. I read her blog and Hyacinth was a beautiful Hav.

O my gosh, how terrible. I think people forget that the dogs at shows are still dogs and every day is different. I am so sorry for your loss!!
